Indeed, superb work!
Em dezembro de '81
Botou os ingleses na roda
3 a 0 no Liverpool
Ficou marcado na história
E no Rio não tem outro igual
Só o Flamengo é campeão mundial
E agora seu povo
Pede o mundo de novo

Looks fab but dare I suggest - a little blood on the sand to give it that lived in died in look.

That is a fair call actually. My game after all is called Blood on the Sandslol

Please don't look too closely at the paint jobs - the mob are a glorified backdrop at best to the stuff going on on the sand.

I'm using a mixture of the Ian Lovecraft and The March to Hell - Rome models

Don't forget that you can 'reflect' or 'mirror' a model in the slicer for variety :)
You may have done that, just wanted to put that out there :)

I meant to ask my mate whether you can flip models around, I assumed you could, but actually forgot to ask him.

Very good to know Matt as the crowd could definitely benefit from a few mirrored members.  :)

Furt, I sir, am seriously impressed!!!!

Excellent idea, properly planed, and exquisitely executed, no pun intended.

The half arena is actually perfect. I don’t know your rules but am really looking forward to checking them out. In other rules we played we had only 2-4 players so easy access to the arena is a must. The front being open the players can congregate in front to play and sufficiently badger and harass each other. My 2 young sons loved the Gladiator games my friend and club mate had ran here in Fort Lauderdale Florida. I bought some figs and animals to run and play, but alas it was another wayward project as the arena seemed too much with everything else I am working on.

Where are your rules available from?

Cheers,
Sgt Guinness

Thanks Sgt Guinness.  :)

Blood on the Sands is still being playtested (for the second time around) but there is an extensive thread here on LAF https://leadadventureforum.com/index.php?topic=51608.0

I've sent you a PM.
